Wine of a rich straw-yellow color.
The taste of wine is full, dry, with seductive caramel tones against the background of fruit accents and creamy texture. A long, elegant aftertaste with light spicy hints.
The wine has an intense, rich flavor, which is dominated by the nuances of yellow fruits, vanilla notes and oak streaks.
This wine is well combined with dishes from poultry, pates, fried fish and goat's cheeses.
